Are you thinking of proposing soon?  Candid proposal photography is a great way to make sure you always have the memory of this big moment to look back on.  I know I would have loved having a photographer capture my own proposal to my wife but I was not really aware this was a thing.

If you are planning to propose, you should consider having someone capture the moment.  This is one of those once in a lifetime events that you will definitely want photos that document the moment.  How cool would it be to look back on these photos with your future children and grandchildren?  I’m sure your family would absolutely love to see photos of mom and dad, or grandma and grandpa, as they got engaged.

I would love to do a candid proposal photoshoot for your upcoming proposal!  I shoot more than 25 proposals every year so I have a lot of experience and I know what to expect and how to get that perfect shot of this once in a lifetime moment.  Your proposal isn’t something you want to trust just anyone to capture because proposals are a surprisingly dynamic moment that happens so fast.  With me helping you out, you can be certain that we will have all the details together and I will capture it all.  I also know the area super well and know all the great spots that are scenic, private, and perfect for what you are looking for.  

Candid Proposal Photography

Here is how my proposal photography session works.  First, we’ll come up with a detailed plan as for where you will propose and at what time.  We’ll go over things such as placement and positioning to get a perfect closeup and scenic shot.  We’ll also go over everything else we need to to make sure it goes perfectly.  My goal here is to make everything super easy to follow so all you need to worry about is your proposal.  I will take care of everything else.

On the day you’ve chosen for the proposal, I will arrive 10-15 minutes before you and your significant other. I’ll act like a tourist like any other just taking pictures of random things. That is not uncommon many places so I will blend in pretty well and won’t be noticed.  Then when you get on a knee, my camera will turn towards you two and I will capture the whole sequence of events.

After a couple minutes when you two have taken it all in, you’ll mention that you lined up a photographer to capture the moment and point me out.  I’ll come up and introduce myself.  Then we’ll do a quick 30 minute or so mini engagement session so you have some nice posed images to go along with the actual proposal shots.  I know they will be super surprised and even more excited.  You’ll get extra points for thinking of something so cool and memorable.

Mini Engagement Session

After the big moment, we’ll do a quick 30 minute or so mini engagement session so you have some nice posed images too. Later that night or by the next morning, I will have a sneak peak of some of the highlight images ready for you for sharing, etc.   I don’t want you to wait long for your photos so I make sure to have some back to you really fast.

The rest of the images will take a couple of days to get to you.
